The W.I. find out What's What

‘What is That?’ was the title of the talk given by Jeff Wood to a very well attended meeting of Natland and Oxenholme W.I. on Wednesday 20 January. Jeff looks for the unusual in the everyday landscape of this region and then goes on to investigate their history. The result was a fascinating talk illustrated with slides which left his audience wanting more and resolving to go and seek out some of these 'unusual in the everyday’.  Do you know where the Spite Wall is and the story of why it was built? Ask a W.I. member! Jeff also judged the competition ‘A Lakeland Souvenir’ which was won by Dorothy Goddard. Members were also treated to their first glimpse of our Centenary Scrapbook with special thanks going to Joan Airey, Jean Dobson, Stella Howse, Margaret Lancaster and Marion Want for their involvement in the project. The scrapbook will be displayed with others in Kendal Town Hall on 26 February. Our next meeting is on Wednesday 17 February at 7.30pm.
